(Momentum) The “Lex CEU” is a law created by the corrupt Orbán regime in Hungary that specifically discriminates against and aims to close the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest.
Although the CEU has fully complied with the requirements set by the Hungarian government, the Orbán regime refuses to sign the agreement allowing the university to operate in freedom in Hungary, even with several Fidesz MPs carrying diplomas from the Institute.
Momentum believes that forcing the CEU to leave is an unprecedented attack on academic freedom, which should have no place in Hungary, nor in Europe. Momentum welcomes everyone who wants to express support for education, academic freedom and common European values.
On 26 October, thousands have demonstrated beside the CEU in Budapest. It’s time for the second act! Not only in Budapest but also in Brussels, Berlin, Munich, Paris and Copenhagen!
There’s hope, but we have to fight for it! We must stand with CEU! We must stand with academic freedom!
